    Instrumentals of 1974

    This took me years to find out what it was. Then some kind soul on here enlightened me. Same backing track as The Detroit Emeralds Played at Wigan in 74' and covered up as the New York Strings I think. Kev

    If the term northern soul had not come about ?

    This was from early 70's. I went to The Raven at Whitchurch to see Soul Sam and this was run by Tony Petherbridge. Don't think he is with us anymore. Never really liked the Northern soul tag.

    Lamont Dozier UK Tour 2018

    I've put a request in for him to do at least one track from his Invictus/ABC/Warners era. I don't have his contact details, but I have a mate who does. I had the once in a lifetime pleasure to meet him and talk to him and watch him work with Terri Walker in the studio, here in the UK, back in September 2004. A day I will never forget. Watching him write songs in an A4 exercise book and joining in the vocals, doing it all on..

    Northern Soul Newbie

    Hi Tony, I'm on the Wirral. Historically, Liverpool has never been a place for northern soul. I cut my teeth in The Mardi Gras on Mount Pleasant (now demolished), The Victoriana, Victoria Street and The Top Rank, where you could see artists like Edwin Starr, Arthur Conley , Jimmy Ruffin etc. Sometimes twice in the same night A group of us went to Wigan. The Ritz in Manchester and Blackpool Mecca, but there was nothing local..

    Show us your great photos (2017)

    A recent trip to Portmeirion with relatives over from Oz. The food is fantastic and everything is much improved since our last visit about 10 yrs ago, when it was looking a bit tired.

    I used to go to Mablethorpe for days out. I'm a Cleethorpes lad myself, Dave, so we used to go to my Nan's caravan in Humberston for the summer. Kev

    M People - How Can I Love You More

    Me too Dave, in a picture sleeve Fantastic record. I think she got a bit into oversinging later on and I think this is much more raw. Kev
